And for World Peace! I love the Olympics and the possibilities that they hold. I pray for their safety, joy, goodwill, encouragement, and inspiration! Ryan is with me and his patience is running out with this sitting still, so here is our prayer:
What do you love to do? How can you use that love to care for others, to offer encouragement, to build up? Sometimes I can beat myself up thinking that I mess up everything, that I can’t do anything well. But is that what really matters? Getting a gold star, blue ribbon, A+ on everything?Continue reading “BUILDING UP… 7/26/2021… Monday!”
What will you do to earn a Gold Star or some other prize? I have blown bubbles with Super Bubble to win a t-shirt, raced to look up Bible verses to win a Bible, dressed up for Jazzercize to win an exercise shirt, and other sorts of crazy. That competitive spirit is obviously within me.Continue reading “THE ADMIRABLES …7/16/2021 …… Friday Flames …”
“Woooohoo!” That was me yelling last night as my friend’s college team won the Baseball championship. It was a great game and both teams played their hearts out, but one team now gets to claim they are number one for a year. It is interesting how much rank means to us. People laugh when IContinue reading “Daughters of the Holy One… 06/27/2021….Sunday Home Communion”
My prayers for the helpers, receiving help, and being a help. Not quite a single focus, but each relates to helping.
Who convinced us that we need to work our fingers to the bones?! Help us to do in love what we can do using our strengths and help us to allow others to do what is their’s to do with their strengths.
Despite what your professor may think, some things are to be experienced rather than known. I could hashtag some people here, but that would defeat the purpose of experiencing heaven meeting earth in a unsearchable love, energy, mystery. You are invited to join me in Home Communion:
Rather than getting aggravated at each other, exasperated, whining, or whatever emotions rise up in times of disagreement, why not recognize that our differences may actually help us balance out our needs? My prayer is that we will be thankful for the gifts of others and that we may indeed work side by side andContinue reading “WE WILL WALK WITH EACH OTHER, WORK SIDE BY SIDE5.4.2021Tuesday”
When I was growing up, the City Beautiful Committee sponsored “Clean Up, Fix Up, Paint Up” contests in the schools. We proudly created posters to share and learned how important it was to take care of the environment. I especially became an activist about litter. I have been known to stop my car and tellContinue reading “TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME 4/22/2021 Thursday EarthDay”
I catch myself sometimes dreading the day ahead. This morning was like that. I had two hearings and had not received some of the information that I needed for either one of them. I got the information for the first one about five minutes before the hearing started. I got the information for the otherContinue reading “Is it really impossible? April 20, 2021 Tuesday”
